Stampin’ Creative February Blog Hop – Celebrating Wonderful Women

By | February 27, 2016

Welcome to our Stampin’ Creative February Blog Hop and if you have arrived from Mikaela, you are very welcome.  Our theme this month celebrates the Wonderful Women in our life. The lady I would like to celebrate this month is my own Mum.

You are having a sneak peek of both her Mother’s Day card and her gift  – I’m 99% sure our secret is safe as she’s not too good with technology!!

We are not long back from our half-term break in Ireland where I’m from and where my parents still live and I treated my Mum to a mini-facial every night while there . One of the products she loved was Neal Yard’s Wild Rose Beauty Balm. You can read more about this amazing product here.

I used the special edition packaging as inspiration for my project as I wanted to make a card and gift bag using the Gift Bag Punch Board to match.

Stampin Up Botanicals Gift Bag-001

And here is my card.

Stampin Up Botanicals for Feb Blog Hop2-001

And a close-up so you can see the gorgeous die-cut flowers from Botanical Blooms and the matching framelits which are available in a 15% off bundle together with the co-ordinating DSP.

Stampin Up Botanicals Stampin Creative-001

Botanical Blooms is a 17 stamp set with 14 different dies and a bargain at £46.75. You can order it here.  And a bonus for ordering this bundle before the end of March is that this order alone will qualify you for a FREE purchase from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  We have DSP, Vellum and several stamps sets to choose from, some of which co-ordinate perfectly (of course!!) with this particular set.

And as if that was not enough, use the current Rainbow Rewards code 2GEGTMK9, you will get an extra little gift in the post from me.

So without further ado, I’ll let you hop on over to Louise at Stampin Delight who I know has a fabulous creation waiting for you.

Below is the full line-up just in case you get lost.

Until next time, happy crafting
